-->''ďAre you so afraid of him you donít dare speak his name? Very well, Iíll say it for you. His name is Randall Flagg, also known as the darkman, also known as the tall man, also known as the Walkin Dude. Donít some of you call him that?

* BadassBookworm: An evil example, but as the text describes him back in his first appearance:
-->''He would read as his supper cooked over a small, smokeless campfire, it didn't matter what: words from some battered and coverless paperback porno novel, or maybe "Mein Kampf", or an R. Crumb comic book, or one of the baying reactionary position papers from the America Firsters or the Sons of the Patriots. When it came to the printed word, Flagg was an equal opportunity reader.''

* {{Expy}}: Of [[CthulhuMythos Nyarlathotep]]. A shapeshifter who goes by many, many, MANY names, is impossibly old, and loves to manipulate people just for the hell of it? Yep, sounds like him.
